Elaheh is very ambitious and asked great questions. It's a lot of fun to work with younger people and follow their thought process. Being a mentor was a learning process for me as well. I can contribute with experience but I also wanted to get something out of our exchange, and that wish was really granted.

Getting a mentor is one of the best things that has happened to me since I came to KTH. My mentor Håkan taught me how to think, what's important to focus on and he opened the door to great contacts. I would really recommend others to apply!
